Okay here is another one of those terms that is hard to belive "from a watchmakers estate". But, I saw the goods with my own eyes, parts, watches, display boxes and a large sample book of straps. The book was from the 40's and had about 2 1/2 dozen or so straps for men's and ladies watches still inside. Asking price was $100 smackers and I past on it. I thought about it and went back the next days and #$%@ it was sold at a local auction house. Only reason I have this one is becuase I bought one of those Hamilton pockets at the time, so the it got tossed in as a sweetner!
Oh well, I'm sure another "estate will be up soon.
